Harassment Prevention: In today’s world, having a respectful workplace is more important than ever. Not only does preventing harassment affect morale and productivity but it also protects employers, supervisors and employees from legal problems This workshop educates supervisors about the dangers of harassment and hostile work environments and gives them the information they need to know how to handle concerns about harassment and how to prevent it.
Making Generational Differences Work – Today’s workforce can have as many as four different generations working together, each with their own distinctive style and ways of viewing work-related issues. This workshop helps managers understand the outlook and experiences of different generations to improve respect, communication and relationships in the multi-generational workplace.
Managing Successful Change and Transition – In today’s world, that old saying, “the only thing constant is change” is truer than ever. Rapid and major changes occur both in our personal lives and in the organizations where we work. Understanding the change process, employee responses to change and strategies for managing those responses to change is the focus of this workshop.
Sexual Harassment Preventio – In the workplace, sexual harassment is everyone’s concern. Many supervisors and employees are unclear about what actions may be considered as harassment. This workshop gives clear examples and definitions. It is particularly helpful in supporting managers who need to know when and how to take action.
Team Building through Effective Leadership – Effective teams don’t just happen, they require healthy and strong leadership. This workshop helps leaders to define team and to consider the important elements to building an effective team. The goal of this training is to provide managers with information to create and build their team in any work environment.
Valuing Diversity: Multicultural Communication – The face of America is changing, and the pace of that change is increasing every year. In this workshop you will be provided with thoughtful tips on how to accommodate the increasing workforce in a manner that is respectful to others and yourself. Studies have shown that companies with managers who are actively aware of the issues of diversity are more productive and profitable than those that are not.
Violence Prevention in the Workplace – An ounce of prevention is worth far more than a pound of cure when it refers to the threat of violence in the workplace. The employer who has a plan in place for handling highly sensitive situations is far less likely to be the target of threats or actual violence. This workshop aims to assist particularly managers in recognizing and responding immediately and appropriately to potential violence from within and outside the workplace. This workshop can be a beginning step to help a company develop a workable violence prevention plan and/or threat assessment team or it can be a re-fresher for an organization that already has violence prevention plan in place.

What makes a successful leader? Research has shown that while cognitive intellectual ability is a factor in determining a leader’s success–equally as important is their emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence helps us relate to others and factors into how we perceive ourselves. The good news is that our emotional intelligence can be developed and EAN’s Supervisory Career Enhancement Training and Coaching helps leaders and managers to develop and maintain those skills that make up our emotional intelligence.
Here’s how it works:
Step One: Leaders attend a three to four hour training providing them with an assessment of their emotional intelligence, and an educational foundation to understand the elements that help develop personal and social competencies. During the training, leaders will use an assessment tool to help identify competencies that they will work toward improving.
Step Two: Leaders are matched with a coach who will work with them by phone and face-to-face toward improving their abilities in the competency areas they identified during the training component and further leadership skills.
Step Three: Coaches will work with leaders up to six months to continue developing skills further through the use of internet-based learning, guidance, and educational information that will work with leaders in obtaining the motivation, capacity and opportunity needed for change.
